There’s so much to like about Pantone’s Color of the Year, Greenery. It’s light. It’s fresh. Most importantly, it’s a color that signifies a new start, which is definitely what we all need after this roller coaster of a year. The bold hue of green is reminiscent of the first day of spring, a warm and welcome repose after the cold of winter. Greenery, as Pantone introduces it, is a zesty yellow-green illustrative of flourishing foliage and a reinvigorating homage to the great outdoors. If you’re excited to use this color in your home and be around it all day, do it in moderation. Here are a few tips on how to subtly incorporate a palette of Greenery into your interiors.

1. Juxtapose it with another bold color.
While the shade might speak for itself, you could give your palette a break by adding a subdued streak of bright yellow or sky blue. The whole outcome will be playful, yet tasteful.


2. Introduce small home accessories in Greenery.
If you don’t want to commit to the color just yet, try it out by adding a hint of it through home accessories. Lamps, the odd throw pillow, or a vase on your coffee table will instantly brighten up your space.

3. Use statement pieces in Greenery.
Make use of the odd one out by adding a single chair in Greenery or a work of art that will become a focal point and bring the whole room together. It’s also a useful way to break continuity.


4. Play with patterns.
Greenery is anything but dull, which is why you should find pieces that integrate it into a pattern. It will liven up the setting even more than a solid piece will.


5. Partner it with other shades of green.
Pair it with less bold shades to create a grouping that’s easy on the eyes.

6. Put it against neutral colors.
Place a few pieces against blacks, whites, and grays and the whole room will instantly have new character. Instead of investing in new pieces, you could also have old ones repainted.


7. Use actual greenery in your home.
What better way to include greenery into your house than by adding fresh foliage right where you can see them.


8. Make it work with patchwork.
Using this trendy technique, take an edgy piece of furniture finished in different colors (plus Greenery) and introduce it to your living space.
